Originally released on the PS4 back in 2018, Marvel’s Spider-Man quickly won over the hearts of gamers and is now recognised as one of the best, if not the best, Spider-Man games of all time. This is in large part due to Developer Insomniac Games completely nailing the web-swinging mechanics of the game.

In 2020, a PS5 Remastered version of the game was created and made available to fans. This remaster coincided with the release of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a follow up to the original title that was met with similar praise and adoration. The ultimate edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales even included the Remastered version the of original game. The latest announcement marks the next wave of PlayStation titles making the transition to PC, something Sony have made clear to be a big goal of theirs in the coming years.

Other big PlayStation titles such as God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone have already made the leap to PC. Given the reported sales numbers for these ports, Sony’s investment in PC gaming seems to already be paying off. In a business segment briefing for shareholders last month, one slide revealed that the three titles mentioned above have brought in $80 million in the last fiscal year.

In a PlayStation Blog Post, Nixxes’ Founder and Senior Director of Development Jurjen Katsman spoke about the collaborative effort that is going into the PC release of the Marvel’s Spider-Man titles:

“I am extremely pleased with our collaboration with Insomniac on the Marvel’s Spider-Man series, the shared support provided between our teams and their dedication to quality above all is inspiring. It allows our team to leverage our technical expertise and focus on creating the best possible PC experience that takes advantage of all the exciting possibilities the PC platform has to offer.”

With Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 already confirmed for PlayStation 5, a PC version of the up-and-coming sequel is highly likely.
